Random Catch-up

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Protective Sun Lotion SPF 15
I got this through the post; you could enter a draw to receive a sample on the Hawaiian Tropic website, months ago.
This sunscreen lotion has moisturizing ribbons that, apparently, keep you hydrated during sun exposure. It arrived quite late for me to try out now, plus the SPF15 is nowhere near enough to actually sunbathe, in my opinion.
I will save it for next spring and use it as a city spf protection - smells lovely!

I'm a big fan of both the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain & Clinique Chubby Stick - and I want to get another one... the problem is that I can't decide on which colour to buy... so I went a bit swatch-crazy in Boots. ;P
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains
Clinique Chubby Sticks
I also want one of these Clinique holders that you could get in June (when the new colours came out)... anybody knows if they're still available and where??

Lancome New Hypnose Star mascara
The lovely Sandra from Beauty Balm heard me complaining that I couldn't find a Tatler magazine with the free mascara anywhere, so she kindly posted one to me - she's such a sweetheart! :)
I love this mascara - it's really become one of my favourite, I'm just not a fan of the floral scent.
Still, I like it so much that the smell doesn't put me off from using it.

I got both these parfumes from Boots.com - you can often apply for a free sample and I usually find out about these on Twitter.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire is not to my liking: it's too sweet, coming from the cherries and berries in it, and gives me an headache.
Lancome La Vie Est Belle, instead, is lovely! This is warmer and powdery and grown up, which I prefer.
I just realised that's the one with Julia Roberts in the advert... she looks pretty amazing in it, don't you think?!

I'm pretty obsessed with trying new foundations - lately, there are just too many coming out all the time that I don't have enough hours in a day to try them all, really... the most hyped have been YSL Le Teint Touch Eclat and Urban Decay Naked Skin.
They are both very very nice foundations but I have to give the edge to Urban Decay Naked Skin!
The consistency of UD one is just right up my street - it's nearly liquid and disappears into the skin. 
I got the shade 3.0 which I think it's a tad too light for me but still, It's performing really well.
YSL also gives a great, natural finish... but I now tend to compare all foundations to my favourite - NARS Sheer Glow - and that baby still comes up on top!

Finally, I won Raffles Bizarre giveaway - YAY!!
A huge collection of diy goodies, note paper, stickers, postcards... I'm obsessed with stationery as well so I was thrilled to see this parcel in my letterbox. I'm sure it will come in hand to prettify Christmas pressies, too. ;)
 
What have you been up to lately? :)
